Global Horizons for UK Universities

Front Cover
Council for Industry & Higher Education, 2007 - International education - 65 pages
The purpose of this report is to provide decision makers in universities with ideas on how they might further internationalise their institutions. The author takes a comprehensive, wide ranging definition of what internationalisation actually means and distinguishes between those activities on a UK campus and those undertaken overseas. The main focus is on the former since the CIHE is particularly interested in what can be done to make UK graduates more globally aware and attuned to different countries and cultures and hence also more attractive to major employers. CIHE wants the experience of UK higher education to be of such a quality and so globally based that the UK becomes the preferred location for internationally mobile students. CIHE is also interested in raising the knowledge base and the UKÔs access to world class R & D. The key questions addressed are: What are the key issues in achieving an internationalised university? How are they being addressed and what good practice is there to learn from? [p.1, ed].
